    Help help help diet ...

    Ok I'm a newbie... Expecially to a diet ... Background
    I'm 37
    6'5"
    359 lbs
    Recently had a 2 year bout with depression ... Found out I had severe low t serum was 250 after
    A couple months of trt serum is 1200
    Now with the energy or will that I havnt had in years I have set a 100 lb goal
    I need to lose 100 lbs ... I don't have a set time but the sooner the better
    I do not know percentage of bf I have but it's alot ... Seeing I havnt been to the gym in a decade
    ... It's very very sad
    My question .. I need someone's help on foods diet etc ... I cannot afford a nutritionist or going to gym at the moment .. My problem with the food I was eating is I didn't care .. It's amazing looking back at how much garbage I put in my body anyway .. I understand its as simple as u are what u eat ... But I need structure since money is kinda hard to comeby
    Mon- fri
    I get up at 5:30 to be at work by 7:45
    I sit at a computer all day ..
    I have a fridge and microwave at work
    I get off at 5 pm get home .. Walk my English bulldog approx 1 mile
    At 8-9 pm I work out for about 45 min on a bowflex blaze
    In a couple of weeks I plan in buying some stuff for cardio 3 things
    1. Treadmill
    2. Jump rope
    3. Undulation ropes 2". 50 '
    I understand that eating 5-6 meals a day will help the body have protiens and the nutrients needed readily avail all day long ... But I am at a loss of what to eat ...I need cheap fast and something I can make alot of so I can have days of meals prepared ..
    What are some of u guys eating ??
    I am going to lose this weight for sure I will document my progress in this forum this is going to be awesome .

    Brocoli oatmeal quinoa chicken breast ground beef romaine lettuce tuna salmon,.. The list goes on,
    If you dropped all your junk food, pop,chips..,anything refined... If you can't figure out how it was made in 2 steps don't eat it.
    You're one heavy dude, losing weight isn't hard ,
    So even you can do it... And don't get all technical with counting macros right now, just eat healthy and you will sweat out fat!
    Best of luck

    Further to what cj111 suggested, you will need to determine what your TDEE is so that you can create a solid diet with a caloric deficit sufficient enough for you to lose unwanted body fat.

    You'll first need to determine what your body fat % is. Use this chart and then calculate LBMX15=TDEE

    Then set up an exercise routine that fits your life style, daily obligations, and goals.

    Awesome guys thank you .. I cut the garbage out about 2 months ago when I started easing my way back to working out
    ... I lost 0 lbs in 2 months ... But it's been 10 years since I've worked out I had 0 muscles it felt like anyway ... I feel tight alot of mass underneath all this fat ... I'm sure it's because of the working out I've been doing with the cyp200 I'm taking
    Now if I understand this correctly my
    BMR - 3079
    TDEE -3659
    So if I eat less that 2500 calories and cardio cardio cardio the weight should come off
    Do you guys have any recipes like hamburger and rice
    Something easy ill explain ... B4 all this ... My intake of food was this

    Breakfast : nothing ... ever
    Lunch : anything (like cheeseburgers)
    Diner : anything (like cheeseburgers lasagna hot dogs etc)
    This is what I've eaten for years ..I'm sorry if I sound stupid counting calories is math
    I just don't know how to eat RIGHT

    What is your BF% according to the Mens BF Chart? I just want to ensure your numbers are fairly accurate.

    LBMX15=TDEE

    359x28%=100.52
    359-100.52=258.48

    258.48X15=3877.2

    I like your 3700 number even better.

    Hit the grocery store and get this show on the road!

    Tupperware containers at the Dollar Store or the Buck Or Two store are real cheap. And they have the ones with the separator in the middle for separating food items!

    I've seen people say that on these diets that they are starving
    I feel like I'm going to throw up I've never eaten this much before and I'm barely about to eat meal 3
    I have got to find a liquid substitute for at least 2 meals

    Man 3700 cals is a huge number. If you're full, stop eating..you don't NEED to eat 3700 calories a day.
